February 14, 2008

This was a showfill for Morning Joy, Philip Barker's program on CJSW. Again, my apologies for being slow in getting this posted:

"Ghost lines" - Michael Blake Sextet (Amor de cosmos)
"Say you're mine" - Donald Byrd (The cat walk)
"El bajo negro" - Stanley Clarke (The toys of men)
"Acetnam" - Louis Bellson and His Big Band (Their time was the greatest)
"3" - Shradda (Merdeka Hall, Putra World Trade Center, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, September 7, 2002)
"Thanking the universe" - Nicole Mitchell's Black Earth Ensemble (Black unstoppable)
"Still unsure" - Oddarrang (Jazz from Finland 2008)
"Mambo a la savoy" - The Harlem Experiment (The Harlem Experiment)
"Resolution - Hutchinson Andrew Trio (Music box)
"Softly as in a morning sunrise" - Albert Mangelsdorff (In Asia, 1964)
"The arc of a day" - Chris Potter 10 (Song for anyone)
"One for Skip" - Ari Brown (Live at the Green Mill)
"A fine piece of sound" - Antizario (It's great to be fine)
"Write by return to your longing" - Chris Gestrin (After the city is gone: quiet)
"Old man river" - Malachi Thompson and Africa Brass (Lift every voice)
"Chasing yellow" - Klima Kalima (Jazz from Finland 2008)
"Gossip" - Carmen Lundy (Come home)
"This is not America" - Charlie Haden and the Liberation Music Orchestra (Jazz Fest 2005, Haus der Berliner Festpiele, Berlin, November 3, 2005)
"Rememberings" - Brad Turner Quartet (Small wonder)
"Back home again" - Fraser MacPherson Trio (Live at Puccini's 1977)

I thought this show featured a nice mix of old and new, wild and mellow. I point to "The arc of a day" by Christ Potter 10 and the Jazz from Finland 2008 tracks as particular high points from my perspective. The prize for neatest title goes to Antizario's "A fine piece of sound", which it was.

Next week, it's back to just one show for me, my regular set on Tuesday, 6-9 am. Please join me then.
